They are having a picnic in Animal Forest,
The guests were invited by Zebra, you see.
And Elephant’s eating a cucumber sandwich
While Monkey eat sweets in the coconut tree.
Miss Kangaroo’s filling her pouch with a plateful
Of cakes for the young ones to eat with their paws,
And baby Hippo is covered with jelly-
How he had such an accident, he’s really not sure!
King Lion is licking an ice-cream,
With a sun-hat sitting on top of his head,
And Camel is chewing a trifle, while waiting
For Bear to climb out of the strawberry bed.
They’re having a picnic in Animal Forest,
The guests were invited by Zebra, you see,
And even if some of their manners are lacking
I do wish I’d been invited to tea!
